Incredibly, The Blacks A Fake was the fourth time Amazing Dream has beaten the boys at Group 1 level.
The Northern Derby and Auckland Cup in New Zealand and The Rising Sun were the others.
Amazing Dream is just the horse Purdon, son of champion Kiwi horseman Mark Purdon, needed to put his name in lights after making the bold decision to leave NZ and set-up a stable just outside Geelong in Victoria.
“She’s a mighty mare. I’ve got Marc and Gordon to thank. They backed me as soon as I moved to Australia and then entrusted me with this mare,” Nathan Purdon said.
“I can’t believe how good Queensland has been to me.
"I didn’t think it would get any better than when I trained and drove Ohoka Punter to win the Blacks A Fake five years ago.
"Now here I am winning it again and The Rising Sun as well.”
In a further boost, Purdon is set to have impressive Queensland Derby winner American Dealer join his stable in a few months.
Like Amazing Dream, he’s owned by Hanover and Banks.
“He’s going to Kevin Pizzuto in Sydney next week and then the plan is for him to come down to me for the Victoria Derby in October,” Purdon said.
American Dealer capped a stellar Constellations Carnival for champion driver Anthony Butt.
Butt won three Group 1’s, was beaten a head in another, snared two Group 3 wins and also won the Redcliffe Derby on Krug.
“It’s been a fantastic few weeks up here,” Butt said.
“I’d won the Inter Dominion final at the old Gold Coast track on Mr Feelgood, but hadn’t won a Group 1 at Albion Park before this Carnival.
"It’s one I’ll remember for quite a while.”
